Abstract:

This technical report describes an experimental study of the reliability of a glass capillary gas chromatographic system to assign tentative peak identity according to relative retention times under carefully controlled operating conditions. The first phase of the effort involved the set-up, calibration, and optimization of the capillary system. Optimization was realized with the maximum resolution between selected pairs of hydrocarbons in a minimum of sample analysis time. Peak resolution was investigated as a function of carrier capillary pressure and temperature programming rate. A reference hydrocarbon was chosen. The repeatability of relative retention times was determined for normal alkanes, branched alkanes, olefins, alkyl benzenes, alkylated napthalenes, saturated cyclic alkanes, and alkyl anilines that could be present in JP-4.
